Mokins Bay Campground

Mokins Bay Campground is located near the eastern shore of Hayden Lake in northwest Idaho. Located in the northwest portion of the Bitterroot Mountain range, known as the Coeur d’ Alene mountains, this campground offers visitors solitude in a forested setting.

Natural Features: The small campground is surrounded by a heavy canopy of pines. Wildflowers like trillium and buttercups thrive in the springtime, creating a stunning backdrop for campers. Hayden Lake boasts a 40-mile shoreline with a surface area of 3,800 acres. The lake was formed by the Missoula Floods that occurred nearly 15,000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age.

Recreation: Fishing is popular in the surrounding lakes and streams, and cutthroat trout and large and small-mouth bass are the most common catches. Power boating and other water sports are also popular activities.

Facilities: Drinking water, grills, paved parking spurs and vault toilets are among the amenities at Mokins. A horseshoe pit is also onsite. Access to campground is on a gravel road.

Nearby Attractions: The nearby town of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, offers several tourist attractions, as well as restaurants, gas and groceries.
